Has STAR WARS: EPISODE VII Landed On A Working Title?
It’s rough, I know. Now that the cast for JJ Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars film has been revealed, there’s not much left to speculate and gossip about. The basic plot of the story is beginning to take shape, so it’s now a matter of filling in the holes. So what’s a Star Wars nerd to do?! Well, there’s always the subtitle guessing game and it looks as though it just started.
Over at AICN, they’ve got a source that has revealed to them that a working title for the highly anticipated film has been chosen. How does Star Wars VII: An Ancient Fear sound to you? The source, who is reportedly very close to the production, says that the title has been confirmed and that the title has been floating around for some time.
So what does this title refer to? It’s more of a who, not a what. As we know, Max Von Sydow was recently cast in the film, but we don’t know who he will be playing. This source says that Von Sydow will be playing for the Dark Side, along with Adam Driver. Says the source:
“It refers to Max Von Sydow’s villain, who makes Pazuzu look like a p**sy!”
For those who don’t recognize the name Pazuzu, this refers to the demon that Von Sydow battles in the iconic horror movie The Exorcist. I’m a big fan of Max Von Sydow and can’t wait to see him tackle the role of a villain like this. I’m wagering a Sith Lord of some sorts, or something along the lines of Emperor Palpatine. Nothing regarding the title has been confirmed just yet, so swallow this one with some salt for the time being.
What do you think of the title? Sounds menacing and cool to me, so it has my approval! Star Wars: Episode VII is gearing up to begin filming very shortly. Joining the original three actors, Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, are Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Daisy Ridely, Andy Serkis, Oscar Isaac and John Boyega. The film is slated for a 2015 release.
